Ok Folks heres the news that you really dont want to be hearing if a system is infected with the recent evo's of Virut PE infector then no software will be able to clean it sucessfully if run from the infected system.
In short there is no quick 1 hit recovery from Virut...if any one claims to do this then they are misleading you.
Please bear in mind just because the AV's know the signature of a Virus it does not equate automatically to them being able to remove it from an active infection.
These most recent PE infectors are really driving that point home but some of you will have been experiencing this first hand sad.gif
Right can the most recent Virut strains be removed,yes is the answer but inorder to achieve this then the amount of time and effort+tools that will need to be invested then it would be better to reformat and reinstall the computer from scratch.
This is my standard advice to anyone who is wrestling with a Virut infection currently.... full blooded R&R time!!!
That said some will still want to know how it can be done so here comes the current working solution and short explaination for actions.
You need either a live CD such as BartPE/Ultimate Boot to boot from or a 2nd pc to slave the infected pc to.
If you have niether then it's a no go folks.Virut will reinstall as quick as you can eradicate it when attempting removal from within the same OS.
When you have your 2nd enviroment to work from available.Run Dr Web Cure-IT(updated to most recent database).
You will need Cure-IT to scan every last thing on the infected PC so you will have to configure it to do so because running by default settings it will only run a quick scan(limited coverage).
Every last PE file will need to be disinfected so full scan is the only option!
Once this has been encomplished you will need to run an OS repair install to get OS integrity restored.
And the final bits of TLC,all installed software will need to be uninstalled and then reinstalled inorder to restore total software integrity.
This is an absolutely massive amount of work to be done there folks unfortunetly but it is possible.....but seriously tho reformat and reinstall is so much quicker!
